INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Colts defensive back Bob Sanders was back in Sunday's lineup for the first time in three games. But Monday afternoon the reigning defensive player of the year wasn't focused on football.
Bob Sanders finally launched his Chasing Dreams Foundation. And he wants others to catch their dreams too. His foundation is intended to inspire students to go to college.
"It starts with your education. Chasing any of your dreams starts with education...letting these kids gets a jump start on that," said Sanders.
Shanoah McMahon is one of 21 seventh graders selected to participate in the program. The students will get the help they need throughout high school.
"We get to be in this special program so we can focus on what we need to do in high school," said McMahon.
Sanders said the foundation will hold tutoring sessions, mentoring programs, after school activities and ACT and SAT preps.
"It means a lot because I do want to go to high school, I do want to go to college and be a doctor," said McMahon.
And Sanders, a Super Bowl champion and NFL Defensive Player of
the Year is proof that dreams can come true.
